“Son Burn” – message for Father’s Day

Posted on Wednesday June 20th, 2018

Image - Son Burn

This message was originally presented on Father’s Day 2018 at a campground next to Erma Tabernacle.  Every year at this location, we celebrate worship and a picnic lunch on Father’s Day.  While “Son Burn” has been re-recorded, the content is good even if the “ambiance” of being outdoors may be missing.

The story is traditionally known as The Walk To Emmaus.  Luke chapter 24, verses 13 through 32 is the core text.  I recommend reading this passage prior to viewing the video.

This was both a fun yet challenging message to offer.  If it brings up some questions or concerns, drop me an e-mail.  Let’s start a conversation.

Daily Blessings,

“Fill It Up!” – a message on Communion

Posted on Saturday June 16th, 2018

Image - Fill It Up (final)

We usually get our details about the Sacrament of Holy Communion from the Gospel writers (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).  “Fill It Up” draws upon the Apostle Paul’s writings in First Corinthians chapter 11, verses 23 through 32 (1 Cor 11:23-32).  He quotes from Jesus anyway.  It’s the best to go to the Source, right?

This message has been re-recorded from June 3 worship at Erma Tabernacle when we celebrated Holy Communion.  If you have questions about what you see/hear, drop me an e-mail.  If you desire more information about the church, visit

Daily Blessings,

“Hungry For More” – Trinity Sunday

Posted on Saturday June 2nd, 2018

“Hungry For More” was originally presented on Trinity Sunday at Erma Tabernacle – May 27.  The scripture passages are noted at the beginning of the video.  I encourage you to read them ahead of time. When we think of “hunger” our minds (and stomachs) tend to think of the physical side.  Jesus, in the Gospel […]

“Who’s Calling?”

Posted on Wednesday May 23rd, 2018

God called the Prophet Isaiah.  God also calls you and me.  Can you hear His voice?  Here is a brief message on Isaiah chapter 6, verses 1 through 8 (Is 6:1-8).  I mix God’s call to Isaiah with my own experience. While this message was originally presented during Erma Tabernacle’s May 20 worship celebration, God’s […]

I had a bit of a “flashback” moment to a sermon series I/we did several months ago (a year maybe?).  I see all the negativity around, well, just around.  All around.  Rather than simply use the phrase Be Positive, consider living as a plus-sign. God calls us to be more than we were yesterday so […]

“Moral Margin” – Margin #4

Posted on Saturday May 12th, 2018

I have offered a lot of sermon series during my time here at Erma Tabernacle.  But it is the Margin series that just may have the deepest impact on my life — as Christian, husband, father, and pastor.  We started with a great introductory message followed by Scheduling Margin and Financial Margin. “Moral Margin” is […]

“Financial Margin” – Margin #3

Posted on Wednesday May 2nd, 2018

Here is the 3rd (of 4) messages in the Margin series.  We thank Pastor Craig Groeschel and everyone at LifeChurch for the resources to make this series a reality.  “Financial Margin” takes a look at how God’s Word (and God) reveals the best way to use our monetary resources to spread His Kingdom, locally and […]

“Scheduling Margin” – Margin #2

Posted on Tuesday April 24th, 2018

After the previous Introduction To Margin message, here is #2 in the Margin series – “Scheduling Margin.”  Using Ephesians chapter 5 and Matthew chapter 6 (verses are mentioned in the video), we see how God wants us to examine how we use our time.  Are we more focused on the “urgent” or on what’s truly […]

“Intro to Margin” – Margin #1

Posted on Thursday April 19th, 2018

We begin a fresh series at Erma Tabernacle with a single-word title – Margin.  What better way to introduce a series than with one called “Intro to Margin.”  Are you being stretched in your daily life?  Using the Gospel of Luke chapter 10, learn to work some margin into your day.  This message has been […]
